the crunch day is actually august 3rd, that's the day when the government has a big $23 billion social security payment and it has between $10 billion and $12 billion in tax revenue coming in. i think the really big issue for the treasury is going to be how it distinguishes between, if you will, paying back the money it already owes, paying back the government bond holders, and paying its ongoing running costs, things like social security, medicare, medicaid, military salaries and so forth, and i think the betting is that the government will put, will give a priority to paying the bills it already owes, to paying the bond holders, simply because if you don't do that, you go into massive default, and the whole global financial system i think really starts getting shaky, but not paying some of the big government commitments within the united states, that's going to get painful pretty fast. >> not paying the social securitys, the medicares, the medicaids of the world or even our defense budget that's as big of an issue for many in many mind as defaulting on our debt which would be a nonpa
